Intro
He was born in 1910. He arrived in Ghana in 1936 (See Fisher). He seems to have been working under Al Hajj Fadl-ul-Rahman Hakim. In 1936, Ahmadiyya had 4 schools. By 1959, he was the Amir of Ghana (see Fisher). His death is unknown. He seems to be in a group of Ahmadi Mullah’s who pioneered schools and thus conversions in the early 1930’s in British West Africa. He seems to have died in 1997 at age 87. He seems to have had 2-3 wives and many children.

The 5th split in the Ahmadiyya movement happened, this time, Jibril Martin became the president of the Nigerian Ahmadi’s who refused to give allegiance to the Khalifa at Qadian.

In December of 1939, the problem of loyalty to the Khalifa at Qadian was so bad, Hakim Fadl-ur-Rahman was ordered by the Khalifa to force all Ahmadi’s to renew their bait (See Fisher). The majority of Ahmadi’s refused.

By January of 1940, there were 5 sects of #ahmadis in Nigeria. Jibril Martin officially quit the Qadiani-sect of Ahmadis and created his own sect. They were called “Independents” and “The Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam Nigeria” (see page 112 of Fisher). Hakim Fadl-ur-Rahman stayed on and represented the Khalifa from Qadian and were called “Independents”.
